Jason Bruges Studio was commissioned to design and build an interactive installation to celebrate the Cannes Lions Innovation festival. The visual art piece, named EmotiCannes is an anamorphic digital installation made up of 180 small screens that, from certain vantage points, resolve into the icon of the Cannes Festival of Creativity, the Lion.

Plug+Play developed a software & hardware solution using 180 networked single board computers each mounted to an LCD screen. Our software enabled us to treat this as one large synchronised display, offering a huge amount of creative freedom. A depth sensor was used to track the movement of people and so affecting the particle effects across the screens which were indicating the sentiment of the festival by analysing tweets in real time.
